TO TEST IF YOUR VIRUS SCANNER IS WORKING PROPERLY ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS:



•RIGHT CLICK ON YOUR DESKTOP AND CLICK ON NEW THEN CLICK ON TEXT DOCUMENT, (IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT YOU NAME IT).

•COPY THE CODE BELOW IN THE TEXT DOCUMENT (HAS TO ALL BE ON ONE LINE TO WORK).

Code:
X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*
 

•ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THAT CLICK FILE AND THEN CLICK SAVE.

•YOUR VIRUS SCANNER SHOULD PICK IT UP AS SOON AS YOU SAVE IT BUT IF NOT RIGHT CLICK ON THE TEXT DOCUMENT AND CLICK SCAN FOR VIRUSES OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

THIS IS NOT A REAL VIRUS! IT IS JUST TO CHECK THAT YOUR VIRUS SCANNER IS WORKING.
